FanFiction (commonly abbreviated to fanfic or fic) are cute literary pieces composed by people who enjoy taking a film, novel, television show, book, or other media work, using the characters and situations developed in it and raping them in every possible and impossible way up the ass (as a matter of historical interest, it should be noted that in the pre-1965 era, the term "fan fiction" was used in fandom to designate Science Fiction written by members of fandom (specifically that of Star Trek) and published in fanzines, as distinguished from works professionally published; this usage is now obsolete).
The most common usage of fanfiction is merely as an excuse for sup-par writers to write out their most erotic fantasies with their favorite fictional characters. In some cases, others in the public domain fandom circles they score a publication like the Fandoms of old. The small press and author Nickolaus Pacione had a strange relationship that's a working one with some fandoms. The small press had tapped ficcers from some fandoms but others, the dirty looks come keep scrolling the details get interesting enough.

Some argue that Virgil's epic poem, The Aeneid, was the first work of fan fiction, based on Homer's Odyssey; in it, a Trojan named Aeneas leads a group of refugees after the fall of the city to find a new homeland, eventually founding Rome. Unlike all other fan fiction thereafter, it actually wasn't a complete pile of shit. The world's second fanfic is also its most successful. Titled "The New Testament," the fan fiction takes the main character from one of literature's most successful works, the Bible, and sends him on new, semifucktarded adventures concocted by the fans. The fanfic cemented a number of trends in fanfiction that to this day are still prevalent. It introduces a new main character who is basically the old main character only not. The new character is also the first example of a Gary Stu in fanfiction.
Like most fanfiction writers, the authors weren't very creative, so they stole a lot of their story ideas from other, better stories. All in all, the fanfic was pretty shit, but it somehow managed to get published. Even though the Jew categorically denies that it is canon, a whole bunch of faggots have released new editions of the original book with the fanfic attached. The original publishers are, of course, not pleased, but this was all done in the days before copyright law (which they then invented to get revenge), so they can't do shit. One of the more successful fanfics of more recent times is the Bible-based Book of Mormon, which is fanfiction based on fanfiction, and as you can imagine it would be, is total shit.
Fanfiction became popular through the 70's and 80's through omg super indie zines, usually writing about Duran Duran members fucking each other's brains out. It has since come to the forefront after the rise of the Internets, where it flourishes despite the possibility that it infringes the copyright of the film, book, TV show, or other media on which it is based. Generally, fan fiction writers will claim to be asexual and/or antisexualists to provide a reason for their lack of sex IRL other than the truth that they are too busy wacking off to written depictions of Fox and Falco fucking each other in the ass.
Note: Since its conception, some believe that Fanfiction has reached a status analogous to Rule 34, as in: If it exists, there is Fanficton of it. So far, Nobody has argued this belief to be anything but fact..
How to write fanfiction
- Go to http://prillalar.com/drabbles/ and fill in all of the fields.
- Click "Drabble me!"
- Go to http://fanficmaker.com
- scroll down without reading anything and click the "i understand the dangers to my sanity" button.
- Pick the preset that makes you the horniest and move the sliders all the way to the right.
- Click "make story".
Major genres of fanfic include those based on: J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series; Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series; J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings; God's autobiography The Bible; science fiction serials (both on television and in film) including Supernatural, X-Files, Buffy, Star Trek, and Gilmore Girls; other serial television (dramatic and even comedic) including Grey's Anatomy, Prison Break, Alias, and Scrubs; and American cartoon series such as Teen Titans, Ninja Turtles, Danny Phantom and Avatar the Last Airbender.
However, the vast majority of fanfiction is based loosely on anime. Even if the material which inspires the fanfic bears absolutely no resemblance to anime, fanfic writers will find some way to introduce anime influences.
A large subsection of fanfiction revolves around romantic and/or sexual relationships between characters, almost always outside the canon of the source material and often dealt with in explicit detail. Further, among relationship centered fan fiction, a large portion deals with same sex relationships, with male/male pairings being the most common; this is called slash or yaoi. Fanfiction revolving around pairings is often denoted by writing both names (or abbreviations of such) with a slash or a (usually lowercase) x, or by fusing the two names together. An example in the Harry Potter fandom would be Snarry or SnapexHarry. If one was to believe the outlook of most yaoi writers the following will always be true: "If male 'A' spends more than 30 seconds with male 'B', male 'A' is automatically secretly gay for male 'B' and wishes to build up the courage to tell male 'B'. So according to the 16-year-old girls on anime discussion forums, the human race is doomed.
Some fanfiction falls into the category of Mary Sue fanfiction fantasies, where a new character representing the writer enters the story and upstages all of the established characters. However, Mary Sue can also be a character that's 'perfect' and has no inherent faults. While Mary Sue has some fans, she's generally frowned upon as she rarely adds to the story and is simply there to fuck all the main characters.
Other popular trends include: making sitcom characters rape, murder, and/or enter suicide pacts with each other; authors inserting themselves into universes in order to rape or be raped by established characters; handing out penises on a gender-equal basis, and generally just doing a lot of fucked up shit.
Or, when a character dies in a story and people don't like it, they write fanfiction of the parallel that the character had lived, and then through bad writing they make the character nothing like that of the original story, as demonstrated here.
The quality of the fan fiction in any given fandom is equal to the negative of the square of the absolute value of the quality of the fandom's canon, or, in mathematical terms, X = -(|Y|)². Therefore, both good and bad canons will have far worse fanfictions. Thusly, from this, we can conclude that all fanfiction is bad.told off fanfic writers for perusing their hobbies. They are consequently the target of angst and much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Some fan circles end up getting noticed pending if they don't do slash fan fiction, two notable stories were recruited. They ended up joining a Boston Globe alumni. Follow here for the bonus. Some fandom circles will get tapped in the small press if there's something unique in them as some of the stories from The Twilight Zone had been released in the public domain.
- Creative Nonfiction -- they will convince them to try nonfiction about their exploits and shell out the $3 handling fee as they're a non-profit but they pay out for submissions too. They hate real person slash. They were impressed by The Lost Souls by Sarah Williams and Face of Dreams by Sean Benedik while the rest of the roster saw approval by Anne Serling. No shit!
- Katherine Kerr
- Diana Gabaldon
- Disney Company when they see Rule 34 of their properties, they have called those who did this "customers". The comment on Disney here, "I'm just having to wonder why none of our highly-vaunted law enforcement agencies haven't done anything about him . . . could it be that they've used up their budgets trying to imprison some poor schlub for smoking a joint? Too bad he hasn't tried to kype anything off of Disney . . . that would be the end of him, for damn sure! The paperwork alone would make a pile big enough to crush him to death."

- Short Story: The Fandom Writer invoked a jihad on slash fiction. The targeted fandom were calling him a fundie. The responses that the author made were more or less get the fuck off my internet. The short story is something of world weird web legend; it became the very story that got Christine Morgan pissed at him. An Eye In Shadows had that effect on Fandom Wank. The Fandom Writer the roster who became his imprints said, "All hell broke loose and opening Pandora's Box. Plagiarism is hardly discussed but you crucified the subject of it." One of the Gothic Horror tales that caused an obscenity controversy for minimal profanity.
The following authors, while openly hating fanfiction, are still fucking horrible.
Archive of our Own emerged in the mid-2000s and trailing authors who had been published; sometimes the fannish stay fannish claiming why fan material should be celebrated. There was a woman who was the same age as the horror story's ill-fated character from Nickolaus Pacione's notorious short story The Fandom Writer. Ironically she died and the slash fan fiction circles were bawling over this; trying to scoff at it only to realize it only contributed to the sting. They will do the banhammer if someone engages in truth telling and promoting creative nonfiction.
They have chronicled a woman who claimed to been a publisher since the 1970s but she was butthurt when Pacione pointed out calling herself one is mocking April Derleth because she's engaging in casual copyright infringement. There is this article floating around too, appearing in 2015 as some of Pacione's alumni had revealed to have written this. Some of the fan circles job-shame the small press, but when they get tapped Archive of our Own pretends this doesn't happen or have none of it. Wait this gets freakier as a woman who is from Florida is the one who died before the story was realized.
"Did you think we'd ENJOY this little joke? Did you think we'd find it so DREADFULLY amusing, hahahah, to be basically told "You suck, you all suck, and we're taking your toys away because we can, and until WE decide to tell you that it's not permanent we're just going to sit over here in a huddle and lauuuuuugh at all you silly wankers"? Do you think we enjoy being treated like that? Frankly, my dear, if you believed you could control the wank to your own purposes, you are an idiot. The explosion was inevitable, the bad feelings are unpreventable, and the bad aftertaste is certainly unpleasant. You may have thought this was a clever joke, but there are an awful lot of people out there who are now SALIVATING over the fact that F_W "faw down an' go BOOM." They aren't following all the links, they aren't reading your explanations, they don't care. They're just pointing and laughing. Is that the F_Wers' fault for wanking? Honestly, I didn't see much wank at all. Just a lot of honest confusion and the usual making of popcorn and organizing of orgies. Didn't matter, though...in the end, all anyone's going to remember is "gee, that got wanky," and that's all there is to it. So thanks. You made us the butt of a joke for anyone who's ever rooted for F_W to be TOSed, sued, spammed, or otherwise damaged. Yeah. We needed that."
In truth Fandom Wank was crossing the line with harassing the locals as Mindset learned the hard way coming at Nickolaus Pacione when he wrote An Eye In Shadows.
Just punch up Fan Fiction on the site and see what results show up, don't say we warned you. There's no articles on here about them yet but there are things found that you might not believe it when they see it. Uncyclopedia discusses the practice known as Pull to Publish. The article used the article here as a springboard but made it more informative. Blurb.com houses The Death of Cliff Huxtable as the timing is dealing with Bill Cosby. There are some who are discussing this within Vanity Press as there are a few from Archive of our Own sneaking their yaoi on site too.
There are some factors that are surprising with things that may surprise readers and what not if what they find, and what they don't know is how many are offering them in print as nonprofit entities. Christine Marie Morgan admitted what the one who did the Naruto piece tried to do wasn't kosher but actively screwed over Pacione since An Eye In Shadows was published. She infamously teamed up with Fandom Wank to go after Pacione as they saw An Eye In Shadows as an empty threat. Fan History actively did the research on both of them and noted the feud they had when it came to outing Morgan.
Discussion on Vanity Press about how Lulu.com had a Fan Fiction sneak and Amazon.com still has this for sale.
Believe it or not, Fanfiction.net is not the center of shitty fanfiction. 12 year old Disney fangirls also enjoy posting their lemons on YouTube to demonstrate to us how much they've learned from their 5th grade health and grammar classes.
A typical fan fic writer's views
Wow. What an amazing story! It was an emotional roller coaster ride from beginning to end. I liked the part where Team Rocket jumped out from behind a tree, it surprised me! And the horrible twist of fate when they stole Pikachu. Poor Ash! I really felt sorry for him! I could really feel his devastageon [sic] as if it was my own.
From there, it degenerated from a happy adventurous story into a dark, philosophical tale about the meaning of life, the brutality of this world, and most of all, vengeance. The thematic elements were obvious and overpowering, yet subtle. There was a steady buildup to the climax until Ash, robbed of his best friend, loses control of his emotions and punishes Team Rocket for what they did to him, sacrificing himself in the process.
The aftermath was especially painful to take, illustrating the effect that Ash's choice had on his remaining friends, whom he'd forgotten about and disregarded in his final act. Little did he know how much he meant to them, for they, too, could not continue once he was gone...
The title of the work, "Pikachu", is especially meaningful, oozing with significance. Pikachu was truly the center of Ash's life, and thus the story. In a surprise twist, you pulled off a double meaning of the title near the end, when it was revealed that Pikachu was also the center of Team Rocket's newest money-making scheme to sell coats of Pikachu fur.
In conclusion, with a brilliant plot and brilliant execution, your story stands out as a shining star among a sea of haphazard attempts and poorly-written newbie spew that makes up the Pokemon fandom. I congratulate you, sir, on your monumental contribution to the fandom, and I regret only that I cannot add this to my favorites list fifty times. I hope to see more writing from you in the near future.
- FanFiction/Midnight in the Morgue - Some horribly fucked up necrophiliac shit from the asshole of Bungie.net.
- Another Hope -- Lucas was pissed when this emerged. The small press publishing circles were even more pissed when they seen this. This was emerging when The Typewriter sold to Tales of the Talisman 2.4 then Harry Potter and the Eagle of Truthiness was being introduced. Both the author of The Typewriter and the guilty party of this particular work appeared in the magazine years apart of each other.
- Bonnie 'n Clyde: 60172 again mistaken for fan fiction but noticed by someone in Luke Perry's circle. They raised questions about the true story the film was based on. It's pretty low key but noticed by the locals. The connection to Luke Perry raised questions about the research he did to play the role.

- The Cabbie Homicide -- this is not fan fiction but it's of interest to Edgar Allan Poe circles as this is creative nonfiction with the elements of Tell-tale Heart. This was fact checked against The Chicago Tribune and confirmed.
- Harry Potter and the Eagle of Truthiness uncovered when The Pattern Of Diagnosis was introduced and Another Hope was blown wide open. The latter is a work of citizen journalism. Appeared with a journalist who was with The Boston Globe and latter Huffington Post. Pattern touched a few hearts in Chicago and saw a nod from Creative Nonfiction. The story that had the guilty party busted when she enabled plagiarism of the twice published piece. Comment on Disney Kyping here. Christine Marie Morgan was doing this since 1996 and it came back to haunt her in 2008.
- Hogwarts Exposed - a nudist propaganda Harry Potter fanfic with multiple Mary Sues, written by a author who has a thing for 12 year old girls.
- Holden's Counterpart -- creative nonfiction send up of Catcher in the Rye and Twilight Zone with frightening elements. When fact checked it's nightmarish. The piece has nightmare fuel within the pages when looking in The Chicago Tribune of what played up two years after the rape scandal at the author's old high school. A reader who read the story when looking up The Pattern Of Diagnosis asked about American Splendor as the story did draw comparisons to this because of the real life elements of all three. The story was designed to troll brick length fan fiction works as the statement becomes, "Eventually you'd be stealing from us you fandom wanking sack of shit!"
- One Flesh -- this one saw a discussion and raised some questions.
- The Statue -- This group chronicled the playful debates this story has, and tested on Carol Serling. Introduced author's boyhood home and last names of the characters really were his classmates. This story is entirely original as the stories in this fandom do a lot of loop hole abuse and are often recruited in the indie press circles. He produced this just before writing The Fandom Writer as both stories had that influence distinctly.
